Dragon Age: Inquisition, the third installment in the popular fantasy RPG series, is a game that many fans are revisiting in anticipation of the upcoming release of Dragon Age: The Veilguard. However, some players may find the game to be a bit overwhelming with its open-world format and numerous side quests that can feel like busy work. Fortunately, there are mods available that can help streamline the gameplay experience and allow players to focus on the main story and party member quests.

Corey Brickley, an artist, has put together a list of mods that they have dubbed the “Story Mode” for Dragon Age: Inquisition. These mods are designed to help players skip the more tedious aspects of the game and dive straight into the heart of the story. One of the main focuses of these mods is to eliminate time-consuming elements such as the War Table, which requires real-time waiting to complete quests, and the “Power” mechanic, which forces players to do side quests to progress in the main story.

Having not played Dragon Age: Inquisition in several years, I can attest to the fact that the game’s main story and characters are its strongest aspects. However, the abundance of unnecessary content and time-gated mechanics can detract from the overall experience. These mods aim to address these issues and provide a smoother and more enjoyable gameplay experience, especially for those looking to revisit the game before the release of The Veilguard.

If you are playing Dragon Age: Inquisition for the first time, incorporating these mods into your gameplay may significantly enhance your experience. Additionally, for newcomers to the series, it is recommended to play through the previous games and their respective DLCs to fully immerse yourself in the world of Dragon Age. By utilizing these mods and taking the time to explore the rich lore and characters of the series, players can truly appreciate the depth and complexity of the Dragon Age universe.
